I really love books, I have about 250 titles now. A book has to jump of the shelf to me when I'n browsing in a bookshop, I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but I do, well at least it will make me read the back and have a flick through it!
I love reading all sorts of books, especially real life stories and autobiographies along with true to life fiction, anything that can happen in the "real world" I'll read about it.
I also love reading children's books, they are a great escape for me. I have all five Harry Potter's, Complete Chronicle's of Narnia and Roald Dahl Collections as well as about 100 others.

COW & CHICKEN
I have only recently discovered this forum and it is FAB! Dean has joined too. They have a "book of the month" which is voted on out of 6 titles, then they discuss the book online. There are a good few other forum topics too, like best/worst books and general dicussions. It only has a membership list of 140 but is growing!
